Local Authors, Artists & Photographers

Orinda Books is proud to stock books and show artwork produced by talented authors, artists, and photographers from Lamorinda and the East Bay.  We hold author readings in the store, as well as at other venues in Orinda, and we support author events sponsored by the Orinda Library and Orinda schools.  We also feature art sales by Paul Kratter and Gerry Wallace twice a year.
